Have you always wondered if there was a BETTER way to make a new folder in Windows 7 (and 8)? I loathe having to right-click in my current folder and choosing New > Folder. The New submenu is usually WAY at the bottom of the context menu.
I did a little digging today and found this simple post at Infrequent Geek with the shortcut. CTRL + Shift + N makes a new window!!
